Looking for Seat Advice – 340- 600Back to Forum
First transatlantic trip next summer with my two boys who will be 16 and 11. Flying Upper Class via JFK outbound and ATL inbound on VS metal Upper Class (thank you Sky Miles…..)
Currently have us reserved in 10A 11A and 12A on both sectors – any comments or better selections I should make. Figured a window seat each might be nice!

Suspect the boys will prefer the window seats – just one small point to note about VS is their window seats face more towards the aisle, so to look out the window you’ll need to turn a bit to the left.30 Sep 2016
toonfan62 – My only comment is be aware that airlines can and do change plane types and schedules so nothing can be set in stone so far in advance.
Summer 2017 is two timetable changes away.30 Sep 2016
I can’t comment on the VS plane, but isn’t the -600 the very long one? If so go as close to the middle as possible. I’ve found the front and back seem to move a lot in any turbulence while the centre stays relatively calm. My experience is from many internal trips on the the SAA 340-600.1 Oct 2016
Thanks everyone. I kinda put us in the middle away from front and mid galleys but should check where the bar is – great point.
Re equipment – I intend to check seats etc. periodically – planner that I am – I’m just excited to show my boys London, Edinburgh, but especially The Toon ..1 Oct 2016

The front isn’t bad, but agree about the back due to the yaw damper.1 Oct 2016
On VS’s A340 600, in Upper Class, 9 to 15 A or 4 to 7 K are my preferrred seats. As the configuration is 1/1/1, I would prefer the seats that are not facing other seats, and away from the front service area / toilet and the rear bar.4 Oct 2016
